I still don't understand why there is controversy....

Children can't stand to lose an argument, and this applies equally to both sides ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: How do reds come out in your 5d3 ?

I didn't realize that the raw file is not according a colour space. However strange that Canon places a _ in front of the raw filename, in case you choose for AdobeRGB, while the raw file is independent of the colour space as you mentioned.

Keeps the filenames consistent if you shoot RAW + JPEG.

Another pet peeve about the 5D3, they put a slow-ass SD slot in it instead of UHS-1 like they did for the 6D even though the technology was available and mature.  And when you have media in the SD slot, it slows the much faster CF rate down to a crawl.  Totally ridiculous!  Grrrr.

Haven't had that problem - under what circumstances does the CF card slow down when there's an SD card in the camera?

I boot Magic Lantern off an SD card; but write all images to the CF card.


Clicking on thumbnails in some posts causes a new window to open - which is really annoying (as jrista said).
For example :- http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=19270.msg420885#msg420885

Clicking thumbnails on other posts expands the image inline in the current window - which is much better.
Example :- http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=22155.msg422728#msg422728

Is it possible to have all the images work like the second example above?

I don't think there is a way to do this in Lightroom or ACR.

You can alter the EXIF data with exiftool though - for example

    exiftool -CroppedImageTop=0 -CroppedImageHeight=3840 imagefilename.CR2


Lenses / Re: Tamron 150 600 woes

No problems here, and have had excellent service from Tamron.

I sent mine to Tamron to investigate a servo AF issue on the 5DIII - they updated the firmware and must have calibrated the lens because it's perfect at 0 AFMA wide and tele. Before it was -5 (W) to +3 (T).

After clicking the .dmg it creates a drive. Inside of it are the pdf and the fir files to either be copied to cf or accessed via the eos utility. Yeah. Tried it with 2.0.5 from canon and 2.0.3 from some other sites. Even found -1.2.3 and tried it.
Same error. Unable to locate firmware.....check the card, reset battery. It's on the card, in the right spot(root).the impression I am getting is that the camera is not looking in the right place. Would magic lantern do that. Maybe the former owner used it. I'm not that involved with it yet, still learning how to use the camera to its fullest potential.

What size is the memory card?

May not apply here; but I believe on some Canon cameras firmware update won't work on very large cards.

For the EV setting change, check the 'Lock' switch position under the rear dial.

Not sure about the grid display.



So not an EXIF problem; it's a problem with the JPEG data itself.  The most obvious difference between these two files is that the order of the JPEG markers is very different.  If a JPEG parser made naive assumptions about the order of some of the segments, it could barf.

LR 5.3:

SOI (Start of Image)
Adobe DCT file header
Define quantization table
SOF (Start of frame)
Define restart interval
Define Huffman table
Start of scan

LR 5.5:

Define quantization table
Define restart interval
Adobe DCT file header
Define Huffman table

Many of those changes are Adobe-specific, but their decision to move the restart interval before the start-of-frame marker could very easily break parsers that assume the SOF is part of the frame, not part of the file as a whole.  As an experiment, I reordered the sections of the file with dd, to move the restart interval marker and value below the start of frame marker to match the LR 5.3 ordering.  See if the attached file works.

This file does not load in DPP.


In your first image (the 30 second exposure), did you put the cover over the viewfinder?

That looks more like light leaking in through the viewfinder, than amp glow (which is why Canon provide a cover to use for long exposures).

Seems like the 5D iii just got pooped on.  For anyone who can stomach 36MP that is.

Luckily for Canon they have the better lens line-up.  Which is what really matters.
I thought that the 5DIII got "pooped on" by the D800?  Is this new "poop" then?

Same old "poop"; but now you can only get the unfiltered "poop". You have to figure out how to get rid of all the funky colored fake "poop" yourself ;D
